When filling up an Easter basket, most of us tend to go with the store-bought standards – from peeps to chocolate eggs. As for our own creativity, we tend to reserve that for the hard boiled Easter Eggs and those little dye tablets.
But it doesn’t have to be that way as – with some help from Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Executive Pastry Chef David Krzewinski – you can make your own homemade Easter bonbons to put a personal touch into your Easter baskets.
It’s simple, delicious and another gem from Savor Borgata. And we promise these bonbons will make your Easter baskets the baskets everyone is talking about it. When their mouths aren’t full, that is.
Oh what a night! Actually, make that an overnight. We’re giving away a Frankie Valli Concert package that includes dinner for two at one of our fine dining restaurants, two tickets to see Frankie Valli perform live in concert at The Music Box, and an overnight stay at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on Saturday, April 9.
If you want in on this amazing night, just go to your PC or Mac on March 21st, 22nd, or 23rd and opt in to the Frankie Valli Giveaway promotion to get your free entry.
For even more chances to win, play your favorite slots online at BorgataCasino.com during the promotional period. For every 20 iRewards Points you earn, you’ll receive one additional entry, up to a maximum of nine entries.
Our drawing takes place on March 24th, so keep playing to earn those entries.
It’s been a while since Mike Myers revisited his classic Austin Power trilogy—the last one being “Austin Powers in Goldmember” in 2002—and yet, you can still hear an Austin Power’s catch phrase at any moment.
You know stuff like:
“Yeah, baby, yeah.”
“Do I make you randy baby?”
“Are you kidding, baby? I put the ‘grrrr’ in swinger, baby! Yeah!”
“You know what’s remarkable? Is how much England looks in no way like Southern California.”
But we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are ready to add another Austin Powers catch phrase to the language with the help of WSN Games new Austin Powers slot machine.
And that’s “Jackpot baby, yeah.”
The Austin Powers series may have been a spoof of 1960s-era spy films, but it quickly achieved its own iconic spot in film history and taught us words like “shagadelic” and “Fembots”.
And our new progressive Austin Powers slots taps the best of Powers for these amazing bonus features:

Our friends at Atlantic City Weekly name their list of The Top 40 Under 40 each year — a tribute to young executives and community leaders throughout the Atlantic City area.
And once again, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is proud to have had one of our brightest young executives – Simon Poglein, Director of Database Marketing for Borgata – named one of the Top 40 for 2016.
Atlantic City Weekly joined forces with the Greater Atlantic City Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) in 2005 to establish the Top 40 Under 40 — a campaign designed to recognize outstanding volunteerism, community service, cultural enhancement and exceptional work ethics in sectors of society such as business, government, education, healthcare, hospitality and others.
We think Simon embodies those ideals perfectly and are delighted to see him recognized by the community. We had a Q & A with Simon to discuss his being named to the 2016 Top 40 Under 40 List.
Tell us about your background. How did you get to where you are today?
I’m originally from a rural part of Pennsylvania, located about 45 minutes East of Pittsburgh. My college degree, a B.S. in Communications Media, was completed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in December 2002. Both sides of my family, going back several generations, have traditionally vacationed at the Jersey Shore. During one of those visits, I noticed a billboard for Borgata, advertising employment opportunities to ‘Work Someplace Different.’ I applied, and that is pretty much how my career in gaming began. My initial position was at the My Borgata Center, followed by a subsequent move to marketing. In 2013 I took a marketing position with Isle of Capri Casinos, where I was part of the opening team of Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Within that same year, an opportunity presented itself here at Borgata, and so I made my way back to Atlantic City.
What’s your favorite memory in your professional career at Borgata?
There are so many great memories, it’s hard to name a single favorite! The best memories I have are from those events in which the entire team here at Borgata delivers on a truly special, one of a kind experience for our customers. If I had to name one, Borgata’s Free Throw Basketball tournament held on March 21, 2015 was an event I will never forget. It was the kind of day that makes working at Borgata such a unique and rewarding experience.

Through the years, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has welcomed a lot of magicians to its performing stages. The same holds true for comedians, which have always been a staple at our entertainment venues.
When it comes to dragons, however, well, there have been very few. After all, how many dragons are there really that regularly perform stage shows? Maybe Smaug, for a time, but the dwarfs got him.
So not many.
And when it comes to performing comic magician dragons, then there’s only one.
So, it’s with great pride that we announce the return of Piff the Magic Dragon to Borgata’s Music Box for two performances March 19 at 7pm and 10pm.
The 7pm show is sold out.
Not to be confused with that other dragon who lived by the sea, Piff the Magic Dragon has made quite a name for himself by offering up one of the edgiest, and funniest magic shows to ever grace an Atlantic City stage.
And we’re not talking about a children’s magic show here.
Piff is actually UK comedian John van der Put who bills himself as “The Greatest Performing Dragon of All Time” and has appeared on Penn and Teller’s “Fool Us,” and “America’s Got Talent,” and performs an in-residence solo show regularly in Las Vegas at The Flamingo.
As Piff puts it, “imagine Larry David in a dragon suit performing jaw-dropping magic tricks and you’re on the right track. With over 12 million YouTube hits to his name Piff has performed to hundreds of thousands of people in preposterous venues such as Radio City Music Hall, the O2, London, and Sydney Opera House.
It you paid attention in your high school Italian class, Sophia Loren made it pay off this past Friday at Borgata.
The iconic star of countless films made no qualms at her appearance at Borgata’s Event Center that she’s not only more comfortable speaking her native language, but that she loves it. In fact, there were numerous times when the red-clad Ms. Loren, 81, broke into long passages of Italian and had to be reminded by the evening’s moderator that her audience was English-speaking.
